About the book:
In his new book, "Secrets to a Pain Free Life", Dr. Ghorbani offers straightforward, useful advice for patients and clinicians that can help them navigate through baffling, or in some cases, deceptive claims about pain relief.
I've been using Dr Reza Ghorbani's wonderful pain cream that he created and sells on Noxicare.com. It wasn't until my newest tube of pain cream came that I really started looking at the ingredients and saw that he uses 7 of the world's most effective pain relievers: Turmeric, Holy Basil, Willow Bark, Rosemary Extract, Ginger Extract, Alpha Lipoic Acids and Boswellia Extract. I've been amazed at how much his pain control creams have helped me and was very excited to see that he had a new book out called Secrets to a Pain Free Life.
Dr Ghorbani never claims that he can heal a person's pain through off the wall methods. He's not going to hang you upside down or ask you to go buy a very expensive piece of equipment. And best of all he's not going to make a claim that he can heal you or tell you it's all in your head. What he's going to do is tell you in a very personal way what he has seen over the years has helped his patients (he is a Pain Management Specialist), by easing their pain and sometimes alleviating their pain with common sense methods of treatment.
He takes the time to discuss the History of Pain and the Causes, Types and methods of treatment for pain. He talks about Medicines, Alternative Treatments and Herbal Remedies. And of course, he talks about lifestyle choices and how they affect people in different ways - what might be a low level headache to you can be excruciating and even debilitating to others. Lastly, the part of the book that I really enjoyed was probably the last 1/3rd of the book. Dr Ghorbani goes into depth as he explains why those 7 ingredients that he uses in his wonderful cream. He tells us the history of the use of each ingredient and gives a list of benefits that it has provided (an example: Turmeric has been shown to help relieve asthma, speed up the healing of wounds and reduce the side effects and enhance the effect of chemotherapy - for pain it not only is a natural pain killer, it's also helps relieve depression and possesses natural anti-inflammatory properties). I also loved the recipes he provided - these herbs can used not only only the outside of our body through the skin - it can also be used from the inside, through nutrition.
This is an outstanding book and should be on the bookshelf of everyone who has chronic pain from Fibromyalgia, Osteoarthritis, headaches, lower back pain, migraines and other forms of pain. I would think it would also be helpful for those recovering from surgery and even accidents that have changed a person's life. I plan on loaning the book to my chiropractor this week when I stop in - he should find it to be very interesting. (I'll let you all know what he thinks!)
